By Daryl Nelson

It's not everyday in Hip Hop when critical acclaim meets commercial success but that's what's happened with Benny The Butcher's stellar Burden of Proof album.

The Hit-Boy produced LP came out on Oct. 16 and features include Freddie Gibbs, Lil Wayne, Big Sean, Rick Ross, and Benny's Griselda brethren Conway The Machine and Westside Gunn.

It's been recently reported that Burden of Proof will debut at number 27 on the Billboard charts, selling 19,000 album-equivalent units, which makes it Griselda's highest selling debut yet.

Benny acknowledged the accomplishment Sunday, Oct. 25 on Instagram.
